WHO WE ARE

Pimlico Primary is a state-funded primary school based in the heart of Westminster in central London. We are part of Future Academies, a multi-academy trust which includes three primary schools and seven secondary schools in and around London. We are motivated by a mission of social change and reducing educational inequality: our school and Trust are unique in our approach to a knowledge-rich curriculum, and in our strong emphasis on raising children’s aspirations and outcomes through the teaching of classical and traditional subjects. Our children study a bespoke curriculum developed by writers at our Curriculum Centre, which places a focus on developing their cultural literacy and their awareness of the forces, words and events that have shaped our society today. We subject-specialise at primary level, meaning that our primary children are taught by several different subject experts, as they would be in the private sector. Pimlico Primary serves children from the most socially deprived communities: our teachers can therefore make a dramatic impact on the lives of these children.

WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR

We are seeking a bright, passionate and socially-minded individual to join our team as a Teaching Assistant and support children in KS2 at Pimlico Primary. This is an exciting role for an already experienced Teaching Assistant with strong behaviour management skills or an Unqualified Teacher who wishes to gain experience working within a primary school setting.

Key Roles and Responsibilities

  • Provide support to pupils to enable them to access our curriculum and ensure accelerated academic progress
  • Provide support for pupils, the teacher and the school in order to raise standards of achievement for all pupils (e.g. children with SEND, children who speak English as an additional language and all underachieving groups)
  • Promote and support the inclusion of all pupils, including those with specific needs, both in learning activities and within the classroom
  • Use behaviour management strategies, in line with the school’s policy and procedures, to contribute to a purposeful learning environment and encourage pupils to interact and work co-operatively with others
  • With teachers, evaluate pupils’ progress through a range of assessment activities
  • Work with external professionals and agencies (these may include social workers, health visitors, language support staff, speech therapists and educational therapists) where necessary, in order to support teachers and pupils
  • Understand and implement school child protection procedures and comply with legal responsibilities

WHY CHOOSE US?

  • The opportunity to join the Pimlico-London SCITT.
  • Fast career progression. Because knowledge and intelligence, rather than length of service, are lauded and rewarded at Pimlico Primary, teachers can quickly take up great responsibility, leading a department, joining the SLT or writing for the Trust’s Curriculum Centre, where our in-house textbooks are produced.
  • The chance to make a difference to children’s lives.

Closing Date for applications: 12th August 2022
